For over two decades, the fleet dj’s has grown from a small crew to a proficient coalition with over 500 members and counting. since 2001, THE WORLDWIDE FLEET DJ’s has changed the lives of both its members and the entertainment industry they have thrived in.

THESE are the members. HERE are their Stories. WELCOME TO “THE FLEET FILES”!

Name:

DJ chase flow


FLeet DJ Since:

2021


Region:

california/west coast fleet

Check out DJ Chase Flow on Fleet Radio Network’s MIXTAPE HEAT RADIO every Saturday at 9 PM EST

GET TO KNOW FLOW

DJ CHASE FLOW represents California Fleet as he should! The beginning of his story, though, started in Philly. Let’s go back to his story at age 13.

I would always rap with my older brother Shizz Bradley and his crew Infinity in Cyphas; one of the members of the group would always call me young Flizowwwww.”

Chase Flow on how he got his name

As he got older, the “Flizowwww” just seemed to stick beside his government name “Chase”. He developed an alter ego “Big Bad Wolf” from a single off of his EP Go Chase Flow. In his interview, he explains how Wolf is Flow backwards and how the 2 monikers presented the very dynamic contrasts as a Hip Hop artist and Dj. Did you know he is also a producer and composer? Most Fleet DJs are multi-talented like that. His goal these days is to entertain, uplift, and inspire his audiences across the world.

CHASE FLOW HAD TO GROW

Now, 2017 Chase found himself doing a radio interview with Dj Paulymack on 105.5 UFM and kept referring to Chase as a DJ, however, he wasn’t a DJ at the time so when they cut to commercial, he explained “Man, I’m not a Dj,” but PaulyMack explained how the people in the general public acknowledge DJs and Emcees more than record producers, so he ran with it for the interview. 

 They later went to the club for an artist showcase; PaulyMack shouted him out as a DJ yet again and a flood of girls tried to get into the VIP section to see him. For Chase, it was a mix between the factor of being the man at the party and having an appreciation for DJs being a record producer and the love for DJs making mash up remixes of artist acapellas over his beats.

AND GROW…

A year later in Philly the transition between DJs was happening and his music went out while the next DJ was setting up, so everyone looked to Chase and folks started leaving. Long story short, the promoter got upset and didn’t work again. Lesson learned to never come to a gig assuming they have everything there! On the bright side, he did a party in California where no one was really interested in dancing and as he got a little worried, the blend of different genres changed the energy of the room & the party got crazy.

By the end of the set he booked multiple parties! Mr. Flows said it himself, “At the end of the day you as the DJ controls your environment.” Watching other Dj sets online, listening to them on SoundCloud and of course seeing the live show really inspired The CHASE FLOW INTERNATIONAL Brand that is displayed currently.

I listen to way too many various genres and artists. I’m feeling… All of Griselda Gang, Kanye West, Daddy Yankee, El Alfa, Ricky Kej, J-Balvin, Lyric Jones, Nas, Jay-Z, Ricky Ruckus, Anne Marie… Tierra Whack, Madeon, Calvin Harris, B.Smith, Major Lazer, NCT Dream, Tems, Polo & Pan… Ludwig Goransson, Biggie Smalls, Wu Tang Clan, Devin Morrison, Robert Glasper, The Time Clockers and of course the greatest of them all Chase Flow.

RED LIGHT PLAYLIST | New Music Monday

Happy Monday, y’all! The day is almost over, and soon the smooth sounds of the “Midnight Meltdown” will begin caressing the airwaves of Moore Music Radio. Nevertheless, today is New Music Monday across the nation. That means I had to bring y’all a red light playlist, specially curated by me! Now, this list in no particular ranking or order, just catch the vibes and let me know which song stood out to you. Hopefully you can find a few that are brand new to you.

10. SWEET MARCELLA x MR. NOVA

To start off our red light playlist, here we have Mr. Nova with an up tempo, yet suave melody. It really makes you feel something. I just don’t if I feel in my heart or my… you know.

9. ALWAYS x JON VINYL

Next up, Jon Vinyl with “Always” from his album ‘Lost In You’. If love songs that make you close your eyes, snap, and sing – THIS THE ONE!

8. COUNTLESS TIMES x MARZZ

In this video we have Marzz, a voice for the young folk with an old soul. You may have seen her on the Soul Train Awards and let me just say, hearing her sing live adds a whole new sparkle to this song.

7. LET YOU GO x ANAYKA SHE

I’m so excited to see what Anayka She does in her career because this song is just so rich and honest. Unfortunately, we often see girls who look like her and sing like her struggle to breakout.

6. CLOSER 2 ME x A HAYGAN & SASHA RENEE

Take a listen to this single from A Haygan & Sasha. The vibes are oh-so-nostalgic, and the spoken word is simply what intimacy feels like through art.

5. I JUST WANNA KNOW x JADE NOVAH

Now, we always knew this woman could sing from her viral videos. If you’ve been loving the Silk Sonic collabs (i.e. Smoking Out the Window, Leave the Door Open), then you will love this track from Jade.

4. NOTHING EVEN MATTERS x KEVIN ROSS & KIRBY

Now this one is a classic remake. Dare I say that the vibes in this song are even smoother than the original by Lauryn Hill & D’Angelo. The vocals just flow together like water. We often discourage artists from remakes because we DO NOT want them to mess up our favorites, but give this one a chance!

3. GRIND IT ON ME x CHIEF GRIFFEY

Hailing out of Louisville, KY we have Chief Griffey (who is also celebrating another year in the industry today). It gives us some R&B vibes with a Soca crossover. If you’re trying to wine and grind, check this out!

2. BAD x BRXTN

First things first, thank you for this track BRXTN because every time I listen to this song, without fail, I just feel super sexy. This is a perfect song to add to your red-light playlist whether you’re a single or a couple.

1. DISCRETION x STEFFANY MONEQUE

Lastly, but not least we have Steffany Moneque with the breathtaking song “Discretion”. This track gives me mixed emotions because, my goodness it’s beautiful, but it’s so intense. Oooo girl, this is poetry!

So, what was your favorite? Tag me in your responses on Instagram @mochathemack

This Hair Wall Is A Braider’s PARADISE! | @hairwall_official

The Hair Wall and its creator
The Hair Wall created by Dani B.

Everybody knows that the pandemic created a whole lot of hustlers! NotKnotDani, aka Dani B, is no different. In 2019, she gained an accolade that not many in this day and age can obtain! She INVENTED and patented a whole product for braiders called the Hair Wall.

WHAT IS THE HAIR WALL?

This product is the ultimate braiding solution. It allows stylists to have a better overall consistency of braids in an efficient amount of time. It’s, so far, the only one of its kind. Braiding racks and thread holders exist on the market, they can become messy and time consuming leaving you better off to just separate the hair manually for each braid. The good thing is that the Hair Wall comes in different sizes and colors. This means not only efficiency for the client, but a sleek and professional look for the braider. The best part is, it’s portable by design in contrast to the bulky braiding racks.

Inventor of The Hair Wall @NoKnotDani

HOW WAS IT INVENTED?

Dani has been braiding hair for 2 1/2 years, but she’s already killing the game. One night she was prepping for her next appointment. After taking 8 hours to finish a client earlier that day, she vowed to find a solution to prevent that from happening again. She didn’t have space or money to buy the already invented hair rack, so she had to come up with something else before her next client arrived.

Although it’s not the same wall we know of today, she invented it THAT NIGHT with dollar store hooks and a simple flat surface. When she finally got started on her next appointment – she literally cut her time in half to an impressive 4 hours! From then on she started doing her research on if it had already been done. Fortunate for her, it never had been! She had a real winner on her hands!

TRAILBLAZING FOR THE GIRLIES

Since this is a fairly new invention, it’s just now hitting the beauty supply stores. If you don’t live in Kentucky or Indiana, it’s not as simple as walking into the store and purchasing one. However, you can order them online!

Dani plans to use proceeds from her invention to help new braiders invest in themselves with her product. Not a braider, but still want to support this Black Owned Business? People are already using the wall for businesses that are not even hair related. You can use it to store jewelry or a place to hold your keys. It could serve as a work of art for your wall, or any other creative ways you can think of!

Be sure to go follow Dani @NoKnotDani on Instagram and follow @HairWall_Official to place your order!

SOMag Presents “The Fleet Files” With Fleet DJ’s: DJ Mr. Yeah | @iamdjmryeah

FOR OVER TWO DECADES, THE FLEET DJ’S HAVE GROWN FROM A SMALL CREW TO A PROFICIENT COALITION WITH OVER 500 MEMBERS AND COUNTING. SINCE 2001, THE WORLDWIDE FLEET DJ’S HAS CHANGED THE LIVES OF BOTH ITS MEMBERS AND THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY THEY HAVE THRIVED IN. 
THESE ARE THE MEMBERS.
THESE ARE THEIR STORIES. WELCOME TO “THE FLEET FILES”

Today is all about the family! Shout out to Fleet DJ’s as a whole – they’re pretty dope! However, my spotlight this Monday is on Kentucky Fleet State Manager DJ Mr. Yeah. I met Mr. Yeah years prior to being Fleet family, but I confirmed that he is one of the COLDEST during my “March Madness: Battle of the Creatives” interview series. He really does make you say “yeeeaah” or “yaaaas” (for the ladies). Without further ado, let me give this man the flowers that he definitely deserves. Shoutout to the 502 for giving us this leader!

Courtesy of DJ Mr. Yeah

WHO IS DJ MR. YEAH?

As I said before, he is the Kentucky State Manager for Fleet DJ’s, which means all things Kentucky fall under him. However, he is really an overachiever. Think about those peers or co-workers you’ve had that were a part of every extra curricular. We aren’t mad at you for wanting to be well rounded and pursuing your dreams, but damn what will you do next? I love it, no doubt, it’s relatable. There’s no doubt that he could fill an entire resume with all of the stuff he currently does. The good thing is that he does it all well. Brand ambassador for online drink store Raze Energy, owner of 101 The Vibe FM where he co-hosts “The 502 R&B Show”, program director for K102 Digital, and owner of Imperial Apparel Worldwide. Not to mention he’s a G but that’s a whole different story in itself.

WHY SHOULD YOU BOOK HIM

As someone who listens to and receives music all week, I’m not easily impressed. This man impressed me this time around, with his flawless transitions and beautifully executed blends. I spoke with many DJs after our interview and they gave him the utmost respect. I guess you can say, he’s not new to this, but true to this. If you check out his social media, you will clearly see that he is booked and does not have time to play with y’all! Countless weeks of event appearances have proven that he is standing firm in longevity. Ladies’ nights, holidays, quiet storms, and so much more – his versatility keeps him nothing short of amazing! I hope his leadership skills bring together all of the Fleet creatives in Kentucky for admirable chapter results.

This position was [given] to me with hopes of bringing KY Fleet back on the map within Fleet Nation. I felt it was necessary to accept the offer to do my best to fulfill the task at hand. Since then we have added a good amount of quality members from DJs, hosts, engineers, producers, and MUAs to the KY Fleet Division. WE, not “I”, will continue on the same path from here on out. So, I feel that what is [not] being done since I’ve moved to State Manager from Assistant State Manager, is being done in its beginning stages. We still have work to do.

Delmar James Is The One | @officialdelmarjames

Single cover “I’m The One”

Soul is a feeling, not a color.”

@officialdelmarjames

Louisville native and Pop/RNB singer DELMAR JAMES released a new single entitled “I’m The One” on all major platforms this year. He has made it clear that this record is very personal and it certainly shows in his bold confession of lyrics. We had the pleasure of speaking with Delmar and his phenomenal producer, Peter Monk, over on Straight Official Radio and we had a ball! But let’s just say, I think Delmar started to feel the heat while he was in the hot seat.

I asked him just what exactly the song was about and he totally flipped the script and asked me what it meant to me, personally. The only response I could have was to laugh – way to plead the fifth, my guy! I had to ask though, because this pop song very much gave me “confessions of a player” vibes so I needed some details. Regardless, sis (the ex) obviously caught onto his ways and hit him with, “I’m good love, enjoy!” I guess he don’t wanna be a player no more.

Via @officialdelmarjames on Instagram

Nevertheless, thanks for being a great inspiration for this single, girl! Big ups to Delmar James for believing in himself and taking that bold chance to pursue his dreams even when people blatantly suggested his failure. If you take nothing else from his story, understand that it is unreasonable to give up in year one. Delmar is in year 5 (at least) and he is really taking big strides to make it happen for himself. I’ve watched him go from a little to a lot in almost half a decade. Go follow him on Instagram @officialdelmarjames and stream “I’m The One” on all platforms!

CARDI ON TRIAL FOR COOTIES

For the last 2 years, Bronx Queen, Cardi B has been at legal battle with Youtube personality, Tasha K (UnwinewithTashaK). The story goes, Tasha, on several occasions, cites Cardi as being a prostitute with STDs who abuses drugs. Now, this is not the first time someone attempts to slash, slander, or cancel CARDI B – but she’s made it clear that her brand was built to protect her from a trial. Does that leave any room for Cardi to rightfully deserve to pay a multi million dollar lawsuit?

Let’s Go To The Facts…

Tasha K & CARDI B trial via @unwinewithtashak

Tasha K. Is Saying That?

If you don’t know who Tasha is – it’s okay we don’t really care. Here on the internet she’s known as “the woman with fake gossip and cheap wine”. Flattering. The “Press” rapper’s lawyers are saying that sis just did this for clout. The YouTube personality starting circulating videos and rumors about Belcalis around the end of 2018. Following the very beginning of 2019, the rapper filed a lawsuit for defamation against all claims. Cardi? A prostitute? Mind you, we don’t slut shame around here but she did become a stripper so we can’t even shocked. Drug abuser? How about mind your business because if I put you in a room with 10 people, I bet at least 5 of them smoke way more than science suggests. This STD is the real debate.

Cardi B via biography.com

Emergency Card Valid

In response to Cardi B filing her suit, Tasha K. filed a counter-lawsuit on the basis of slander (girl, please)! She claimed that Blood gang affiliates were sent to her house by the rapper to threaten her at her Atlanta home, however that $3 million claim has been dismissed due to lack of evidence. Both parties were scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 9th of this year. Nevertheless, that didn’t happen because Cardi had to tend to a family emergency and the judge approved.

The Medical Records Determine

Though case was postponed, it was not before the judge declared that the Center for Women Pelvic Health at UCLA needs to produce “any and all medical records within [their] possession related sole to the the testing for herpes and HPV for Belcalis…” The new trial date is set for January 5th, 2022. Tasha tries it every once in while with her ridiculousness. But, so far only wins for Cardi on these unbased claims.

Bryson Tiller Releases ‘Killer Instinct 2’

#GetSOM via @mochathemack

THE RETURN OF PEN GRIFFEY

Happy Monday! Y’all know I’m always going to shoutout the 502 especially, because lately they’ve really been putting on. Although it seems like this Louisville artist always leaves his fans on read, he’s returned! BRYSON TILLER released ‘Killer Instinct 2’, which is a sequel to his 2011 Halloween mixtape by the same name. It very much gives Trap Soul Halloween, so let’s get into it.

via Flaunt Magazine

This new release consists of 13 tracks including Tiller’s rendition of Normani’s “Wild Side” and Chris Brown’s “Heat”. The TrapSoul creator also only features fellow Kentucky artists like Julius Keith, Marz, and producer Rob “Saint” Calloway. These folks made ART fit into 28 minutes. (And can talk about the Diddy intro on Money Dance?)

Ima keep showing them what Louisville sounds like…”

@juliuskeithmusic

Where’s Bryson Tiller Been?

Tiller took to the internet and assured fans that new albums are on the way citing his grandmother’s death as his reason to resist stagnancy. This is certainly reflected in the first track entitled “First Call”, which appears to be a conversation with himself about getting back on track. He follows up in the calls after to remind young Tiller to keep going, also revealing that the second voice is future Tiller. Bryson is now gearing up for his long-awaited album Serenity, the follow-up to last year’s Anniversary.

Celebrating the anniversary with you guys last year really helped me fall in love with making music… because to be honest, for a while there I really didn’t want to be bothered with anything music related…”

@brysontiller
via Capital XTRA

What I love about this project is how raw it is! Bryson was just honest through and through, in addition like he said, he just came to be an artist and create with no expectations. He did just that! That “Kentucky Shit” was just dope in a right of its own because this is honestly a song I’ve been waiting for from him. Oh, and the Marz vocals – YES!

If you haven’t heard it yet, tap in here. After you listen, tell me what the best track was! Take listen to the first volume of the mixtape here.

The Rose In Harlem on Her Last Rose Petal Tour | @teyanataylor

THE PETALS ARE FALLING

Happy Monday! I have some bittersweet news for everybody. TEYANA TAYLOR aka The Beyoncé of my life has announced some of the last days we can see her perform. Admittedly, I’ve never been to one of her concerts, but if this is the last chance, I HAVE TO! Forget the greatest hits and the reunion tours – I need her now! Watch her conquer the entire building in this festival appearance in this next video. Then, let me know what city you’ll be in so we can go to the concert!

THE AUNTIE OF CREATIVITY IS GOING ON HER FINAL MUSIC TOUR!

HOW DO YOU KNOW TEYANA TAYLOR?

Some may know her as “Spike Tee”, “Mrs. Shumpert”, or even “the brat from Sweet 16” – whatever you call her, show some respect when you mention Teyana Me Shay Jacqueli Shumpert-Taylor’s name. This woman is the threat of all threats. Even if you don’t know all of the things she does, you know one out of being the singer, songwriter, choreographer, actress, director, model, mom and wife she is. We’ve seen her grow into an impeccable creative force from the time she was 16 years old and now she’s fearless. If you still don’t know what’s up… that’s exactly why she’s doing this tour.

How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard….. However for every goodbye God makes the next hello closer.”

@teyanataylor

WHY IS THIS TEYANA’S LAST TOUR?

Teyana Taylor (Photo Cred: VH1)

This year, Teyana announced that she would be calling it quits on her music tip. There’s always been a conversation of why Teyana Taylor is not as “that bitch” as she should be. Is it because she’s too dark or outspoken? Is she taking the wrong roles for her image? Whatever the reason, there should be no reason. The 30-year-old “Bare Wit Me” artist has said herself that she has to take a break for her mental health and for her children per the New York Daily News. So until she’s released from her label – she’s done. That was the warning and apparently they haven’t acted on their end so here we are. Apparently there is a lack of promotion from the G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam team. Just look at her most recently released Spotify number. Have you seen any type of promo for her latest album, “The Album”? I didn’t think so.

I constantly feel alone, I constantly feel under appreciated, I constantly feel failed, there is no push.”

@TeyanaTaylor

AT THIS POINT IN TEYANA’S CAREER

Within the last week, Ms. Taylor announced additional shows. The good thing out of all of this is that we can still see her work through various other mediums. She was recently appointed the creative director of Pretty Little Thing and has been doing bug things with that decision. She’s been seen with some pretty dope celebrities thus far. Her collaborations, regarding any creative capacity, include the likes Big Sean, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Big Latto, Elton John, and others you may have never expected.

Come out and watch me, leave it all out on the stage… One last time… Just for you & as my last rose petal falls, I say farewell….”

@TeyanaTaylor

My heart goes out to the whole #TeamTeyana because this was an emotional post for me! If no other blog will say it, I will – GIVE MRS. SHUMPERT HER FLOWERS!

The Lit Lounge Tour Is Coming To A City Near You!

#GetSOM via @mochathemack

September 24-26, 2021 – The Lit Lounge Tour is set to kick off this weekend in Jacksonville, FL.

Let’s Talk King of Kentucky | @est.gee

If I ain’t a young shiner then what do you call that?”

@est.gee

#GetSOM via @mochathemack

Earlier this year the “Bigger Than Life or Death” rapper was cited countless times as one of 2021’s breakout rap stars, and rightfully so. Signed to Yo Gotti’s CMG, EST Gee is credited doing features with the best of them – Lil Baby, Moneybagg Yo, Future, Lil Durk, and 42 Dugg just to name a few. People love EST Gee because he raps about some pretty dark topics, but in a way that truly embodies modern musicality.

Let’s Talk King of Kentucky | @est.gee

We ain’t got no pro team in Louisville, this a brick town”

EST Gee

Now, most people who think of Louisville, Kentucky think of bourbon, racehorses, and Muhammad Ali. Lately in the 20’s, Jack Harlow and now EST Gee, have been running the Bluegrass State. Admittedly, I was not a fan at first, but I rooted for him anyway because we’re originally from the same city. It caught my attention listening to his collab with Moneybagg, which is one of my favorites in the game right now, but still I wasn’t convinced he was the star that Yo Gotti was making him out to be. I recently got a chance to really review the album and honestly, I was upset with myself for sleeping on him for so long. I did some further research and had a fan girl moment when I found out that his birthday is the day before mine – he’s automatically my favorite.

On a more serious note, the “young shiner” was described as being “apathetic” towards his fast rising career. I won’t quote it as a zodiac attribute, because like he said in a Pitchfork interview, “He’s seen it all and thought of it all.” When you get the chance to travel as much as he has, you realize that everywhere is really the same – some places are just flashier or more hood or country than the next. EST Gee has the potential to make it all the way. He used to play football before his rap career took off and let’s just say “he’s good at everything he does.”
